Dinkytown Bridge Re-Opened

With the Dinkytown Bridge re-opened, back-to-school just got a whole lot simpler at U of M. I can’t imagine what a pain it would have been to have that closed for the start of classes.

Cyclists are still ‘short’ the bridge at 10th, but that stands to be the case for a good while. The Dinkytown Bridge wasn’t really being used for I35W bridge recovery efforts, and the closure was just political hoo-ha.

Thinking about it, it ought to be interesting to see what controversies the increased use of 4th Avenue and University Avenue by cars creates as fall commences. Those are major cycling thru-ways for U of M students, and vehicular traffic has increased a lot there.
